So I recently followed Veerle's blog post Here and applied her vintage technique to a few of my photos.

Just wanted to see what you guys thought. Should there be more vintage hues like a more yellow tint or more of a shadow?

I think they actually look pretty accurate. The effect you've got reminds me of the effect you get from Holga cameras.

I particularly loved the 3rd photo.

I'm not sure I'm quite getting the "vintage" effect. I suppose my idea of "vintage" would lean more towards sepia tones. I'm taking it, the idea is to make it look like an old photo? If that's the case, I'd lean toward grayscale or sepia for sure.

I too wouldn't consider this a vintage effect, other than it's film-like qualities in post processing. I adore the look though, you chose excellent examples to practice on IMO. I also am reminded of a Holga.

Well, OK. I have to agree with UNFLUX. It is a nice effect. I just don't consider it vintage.

Yeah that's what I was thinking too. When I read through the process in the tutorial I thought the overall post production effect would look nice but it doesn't seem like a 'Vintage' effect to me.

I just wasn't sure what to call it since her tutorial referred to it as a vintage effect.

Thanks for the comments though!
